The beauty of the fabrics from Assam is definitely popular through out fashion enthusiasts worldwide. It was little surprise, consequently that the amazing ‘Made in Assam’ show called ‘Halodhi’ launched the Sustainable Fashion and Indian Textiles Day with amazing textiles at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2016. Three leading fashio designers of the region mesmerized the audience with their spectacular fashion offerings.
The fashion show started with the traditional Assamese dance form known as Sattriya by three youngsters Nupur, Nikita and Gunjan Talwar who maintained the pace of the show upbeat through the series of collection.
It was a wonderful feast for the eyes as Anuradha Pegu showcased her wonderful collection under her label ‘Naturally Anuradha‘. A treasure trove of saris, dupattas and scarves on models showed up on the ramp in a huge range of colours. Blending and merging various fabrics, Anuradha used Endi, Muga and Nuni silks together with spun and pure cotton, which are treated with 100 per cent organic dyes such as turmeric, lac, iron, harda and manjistha.
The catalog of sarees had vibrant weaves of gold and multi colors that outlined the borders and the pallu of the classic drape.
The elegance of the North East states has been seen in the trendy weaves that left the crowd breathless.
By far two of our most liked shows of the day, Naturally Anuradha’s Assam-inspired collection and Pariah by Pranami’s designs were innately Indian, celebrating organic colours, fabrics, and attire, such as the saree. Rich, sophisticated embroidery meshed superbly with pure silk and comfy cotton pieces as models appeared everything from lehengas to dresses that were cultural in essence.
